4 Tips to Maintain the Look of Botox and Fillers

Injectables like Botox and fillers are widely used for cosmetic purposes. After all, taut skin, plump lips, full cheeks, and a defined jaw are staples of the social media age. In fact, social media and celebrity influence are the top reasons for the increased demand for cosmetic injectables.

Botox, when used for cosmetic purposes, paralyzes the muscles in the area temporarily to prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and creases from forming. Injectable fillers, on the other hand, are used to plump the skin. They can add volume to facial areas like the lips, cheeks, jaw, and under-eye bags for a more flawless look.

Cosmetic procedures like Botox and fillers are quite expensive to get and maintain. Most individuals put in the effort to maintain the look of their cosmetic work. Here are some things you can do to maintain your cosmetic work:

Always wear SPF

The sun’s UV rays are very damaging to the skin. They cause aging, burns, pigmentation, wrinkles, etc. Overexposure to the sun can reverse the effects of your injectable treatments. The professionals who perform the procedure emphasize the importance of putting on SPF after the treatment. Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen to be protected from UV-A and UV-B rays.

Also avoid going out in the sunlight as much as you can. Protect your skin with clothing, hats, and big sunglasses.

Skin care

The right skin care will give you the best canvas to work with. Good skin care reduces the amount of makeup you use, targets problems you‘re experiencing, and makes Botox and fillers last longer.

Moisturizing your skin with a product that works for it is the most important step.  Drinking plenty of water will keep your skin plump and hydrated too. Experts suggest that consuming water also enhances the water-absorption effect of fillers. This way, the treatment areas will stay plump for a longer period of time.

Don’t apply abrasive cleaners for a week after receiving treatment

Your usual exfoliation will have to wait at least a week after receiving Botox. Any facial massage, especially with abrasive products like exfoliators, is known to negatively impact Botox.

Keep up with maintenance procedures
